DAY 1: CAPE RAOUL
SPECTACULAR DOLERITE CLIFFS
Today we walk to the first of our Capes
the stunning Cape Raoul in the Tasman National Park.
This Cape is our client’s favourite Cape,
with its dramatic dolerite sea cliffs.
An easier option is available for today’s walk.
Be met in Hobart CBD by our guides for the transfer to start of the track in the Tasman National Park approximately 2-hour drive. Today we walk the first of the Three Capes, the dramatic Cape Raoul with its spectacular dolomite sea cliffs. The constantly changing terrain of this walk will enthral the walker and we may encounter along the way the local wildlife including wallabies, and blue, echidnas and blue-tongue lizards as well as the abundant bird life.
The walks begin as the trail meanders through beautiful eucalypts before it reaches the first lookout where you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the stunning coastline and rugged cliffs. As the walk continues the photo opportunities and views just keep getting better and better. The views from the end of the walk are amazing and you may even hear the seals barking on the rocks at the base of the stone pillar below.
Afterwards, we return to our accommodation for the next 2 nights at Stewart Bay Lodge where we stay in deluxe spa chalets. Tonight enjoy fine dining in the superb 1830’s Restaurant overlooking the historic Port Arthur Site. Sit back and chat about the day’s adventure over dinner enjoying a menu featuring modern cuisine using local Tasmanian produce accompanied with Tasmanian wines. A great way to finish a fantastic day.
